My name is Pepper and I am a playful, friendly little dude who is looking for my forever home.
I love just about everyone I meet and I enjoy playing with people. Although I’m not terribly playful with toys now, I may become more so once I'm out of the shelter I'm staying in and inside a home.
I’m comfortable with all types of handling and will readily share my food with people.
I get a little scared of unusual new things and people, so I may choose to hide behind you. I look to my human companion for direction. My adopters will need to patiently introduce me to new experiences that concern me so that I can get more comfortable with them.
I am very playful with other dogs, am very respectful of them, and will enjoy their company immensely.
I don't know any basic commands but I'm eager to learn for a taste of my favorite treats! I definitely need to learn to walk nicely on leash and not to be jumpy. Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship.
If you are interested in adopting Pepper, please contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter at 516-785-5220 or email email@example.com for more information.
The shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. All adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, will receive all required inoculations and will be microchipped, all free of charge.
Many loveable cats and dogs can also be taken home – at no charge – during the shelter’s “My Furry Valentine” pet adoption event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
